Group and Individual Counseling Services
SCSU’s Counseling Services offers a support group for SCSU students impacted by the federal government’s recent announcement regarding the potential rescinding of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) law.  This group meets on a weekly basis and provides students with support from peers that is facilitated by our clinicians.  The confidentiality of all students attending will be maintained.
